- Hydrooxytyrosol is believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants. Its oxygen radical absorbance capacity is ten times higher than that of green tea. Hydrooxytyrosol is used for medical purposes, including its immunostimulant and antibiotic properties which stimulate the immune system and kill or slow down the growth of bacteria.
